Speed Reading — Flat Earth - Level 0 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

A scientist says the Earth is flat and not round. Mike Hughes, 61, taught himself how to make a rocket for $20,000. He will fly it hundreds of meters in the air. It uses steam and can fly at 800 kmh. He said: "I like to do extraordinary things….No one in the history of mankind has…launched himself in his own rocket."

Mr Hughes will take photos to prove the Earth is flat and has walls of ice at the edges. He said his project will "shut the door on this ball-Earth" idea. He said the flight is, "as scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive". The will be live on his website on Saturday. He already gave lots of food to his four cats.
